Biography


Samuel Robert Piccoli was born on the Island of La Maddalena, off the northeast coast of Sardinia, to an American mother, from Philadelphia, and an Italian father, from Treviso.

When he was very young his family moved to Rome. He studied political science at Sapienza University of Rome. He then moved to Venice.

S.R., best known in the social media world as "Rob," attended Ca' Foscari University, where he graduated in philosophy under Professor Emanuele Severino. He also studied English at San Francisco State University.

A blogger, a History teacher (until a few years ago), a writer, Rob is based in the Venice area and lives wirh his wife, his daughter, and their dog. He cuttently is a columnist at Atlantico Quotidiano, an Italian online magazine on politics, governance and society.

In his spare time he is a frequent global traveller, especially to Europe and USA, which he has "explored" intensively over the years. In his Twitter profile Rob describes himself as "European by birth, American by philosophy," which after all is quite an accurate description. Perhaps it also supports the adage that brevity is the soul of wit.

Rob has always loved and practiced outdoor sports, especially trekking, skiing, kayaking, and horse riding.

He has also lived in England, where he worked as night porter in a historic country house hotel in the heart of Surrey, near London, for about one year.
